Description: One of our most impressive introductions that has proving to be hardy here. Nicknamed as Styrax on steroids, they have proved to be difficult and expensive to introduce taking as long as 5 years to germinate and transport the large seed. Forming large ancient trees in the wild, medium trees in cultivation, with oblong-ovate remotely serrated foliage 16cm long with acuminate tips on red petioles, the ground surrounding them strewn with their large sausage-shaped woody seed in autumn. The result of the abundant panicles of the Styrax-like (but larger) flowers borne in March-April. Best grown in the shelter of other trees and shrubs when young, in a moisture retentive possibly acidic to neutral drained fertile soil.
